ママチャリ – a bike for a mother

ママチャリ
ママチャリ(Mama-Chari) is a very popular vehicle in Japan, means “A bicycle for a mother”. ママ means “mother”, and チャリ means “Bicycle”.
These words are slang, so we don’t use this term in the formal situation.

ママチャリ is a generic term of reasonable and sturdy bicycles. It costs about 10,000 Yen, and many japanese people (not only mothers, but also young men/women, elderly people, high school students, etc.) ride on it.


Of course, I have my ママチャリ. 🙂
